If America ever decides that it wants to know just how big of a mistake it made in reelecting Barack Obama, then look no further than Mitt Romney’s concession speech. It is a speech worth seeing if you missed
Throughout the campaign for president, Romney exemplified grace, honesty, humility, honor and faith. During the same period we saw a President engaged in lies, smallness, hatred, anger division and pettiness. Romney loss the election yet in his concession speech he showed the exact qualities and traits that America needs if we are to heal our land both economically and morally. Instead, I fear what we will see, with another four years of Barack Obama, is a continuation of pettiness, division, lies, fear and literally a stripping away of constitutionally protected rights.
Prior to the election today, I and others had said that America will get what it deserves. For four years the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and so many other conservatives tried to awaken America to the dangers of Barack Obama. In the final analysis, America either did not hear or care to heed these warnings.
In the final stages of the campaign, Rush often said that Obama’s campaign had dissolved to pandering to the “dumb” vote; the miss or uninformed electorate. While I knew that there were clearly people out there who fit this description I never knew that they existed in any great numbers. Well it appears they do and now we are faced with a narcissistic President bent on completing his fundamental transformation of America. What clueless Americans couldn’t or wouldn’t see, others around the world did see; our march towards self destruction.
The following quote was taken from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
America has no one to blame but itself. We are a people who have enjoyed the greatest wealth and living standard of any society in history. Obama believes that much of this wealth was obtained at the expense of other nations; nations that today have horrid living conditions. Now clueless Americans have just re-elected a man who sees as his mission in life the redistribution of America’s wealth not just within our borders but throughout the world; rectifying wrongs committed by colonialist America by giving our wealth to poorer nations. And who will be most affected by this transfer of wealth, Obama cherished middle class.
Unlike those conservatives who have been on the watchman’s wall warning America of Barack Obama, the rest of America, the miss or uninformed, are about to see what they have unleashed on this country. Sadly, though, the rest of us will also have to endure the pain and suffering because of the delayed journey by others to reality.
